I would just like Volla to put forth a viable competitor to the Murena Fairphone 4.
That's so weird. Fairphone 4 or 5 are completely different comparing to X23, that is a rugged waterproof phone.
Plus GX6 is so much more expensive.
Basing the new Volla phone on GX4 seemed natural.
Both the X23 and the Murena Fairphone 4 are privacy-conscious, IP-rated phones with a user-replaceable battery. But the FP4 has the advantage of 5G and a few other advantages. If the X23 were based on the GX6, then most of these advantages disappear or are lessened. The buyer then just needs to make the trade-off between ruggedness vs. repairability and weight, for example.
Yes, the GX6 is more expensive, but at the same time it means less reason to upgrade in the future and better longevity of your device. It better capitalizes on the user-replaceable battery feature.
There was also nothing stopping Volla from releasing an X23 based on the GX4 and an X23 "Pro" based on the GX6, at the same time. That is because the GX6 was actually released before the GX4. That way, buyers have more choices at different price points.
